Dark energy and matter isn't a theory, it's literally just a label for the fact that the amount of mass observed and the gravitational effects don't add up.

If Law of Attraction/magic really works then how come stalkers never get the person they obsess over with?

According to Wikipedia, karma "(...) refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual (cause) influence the future of that individual (effect).[2] Good intent and good deeds contribute to good karma and happier rebirths, while bad intent and bad deeds contribute to bad karma and bad rebirths".
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karma
Now, my question is this: Is the avoidance of suffering the sole reason that prompts one to act ethically, with good intent, or there is also a distinctinctly moral reason to it? This question can be elucidated with a comparison to Christianity; In that religion, the believer is supposed to act ethically for two reasons: Because ethical actions are objectively Good and also because there are punishments and rewards in the afterlife according to one's one actions. Now, the important point is that for a Christian philosopher this former motive cannot be reduced to the later; You simply should choose to do the good because it's good, not because you are getting heavenly rewards for it; The reward can be an additional motive, but never replace the primary one. Someone who simply acted ethically simply out of fear of hell, and would rather murder and rape if he could get away with it, is an ethically flawed man from a Christian point of view: Morality just can't be all about pragmatic motivations - or so the Theologian would argue.

But what about Buddhism? Is there such a distinctly moral side to Buddhist ethics as well, that some actions are just better (morally) than others, and ought to be preferred for that reason alone, apart from the consequences of karma, or basically there is no good and evil in the Christian sense and it's all about saving yourself from the misery that negative karma will bring you?

Discuss.
>>
>>22908445
their pain won't reach you if you hide them, the consequences will be obscured if you block those who know the truth, don't even have to move a finger as the defenses are coded for you so you never have to deal with anything negative.

Karma is bullshit in a system like this, at least christian morality know that you are trash.
>>
>>22908460
>>22908445
This a poor western understanding of Karma.
Karma is simply the result of an action.
Yes their is belief that good actions will result in good deeds, and bad actions will result in evil deeds.
But the idea of rebirth is more based around following your dharma rather than living by a particular moral system
>>
>>22908470
But is the dharma just what you have to do to attain personal salvation or there is also a distinctly moral side to it in the sense I defined in the OP? If a Buddhist could commit evil acts and somehow avoid its carmic consequences, would there still be a reason for him not to?
>>
Perhaps I should add that it doesn't have to be just about Buddhism, other schools of thought that encompass the notion of karma like Jainism or Hinduism can be also relevant to this thread's question.
>>
>>22908445
>But what about Buddhism? Is there such a distinctly moral side to Buddhist ethics as well
It's called the Eightfold path and the rules of the Sangha

>basically there is no good and evil in the Christian sense
You're missing the concept of reincarnation.
Karma causes you to be reincarnated in a caste on Earth, in the demon realm or in the god realm.
Buddhists try to avoid reincarnation altogether, so in that sense, yes, their morality is completely devoid of selfishness, because they still preferred righteous action over no action.
Buddhists don't desire being reincarnated into the god realm (the equivalent of heaven).
The reason for it is pretty sad.
They knew that living causes suffering and even if they'd go into the godrealm, they'd still have to join the cycle of rebirth later.
But asides that, you're born in a caste on Earth and the caste system is horrible if you're not in the upper castes.
Abuse, slavery, rape those are all completely fine when it's done by people in the castes above you.
YOUR karma brought you into this situation and people believe that it makes it right to abuse them.
Now, you can't move up castes in this live, but if you accumulate enough karma, then if you're lucky you can move up one caste in your next life. So, it could take at least 6 lives (assuming you're being reincarnated as a human, you can also be reincarnated as an animal) for a Shudra to get into the god realm.

Hinduims and yoga practices are very corrupted... Vajrayana buddhism is the one with the greates knowledge, and this is because they maintain their secrecy. The most widespread a teaching becomes the most corrupt it ends.

>>22906882
Which Hinduism? Or are you uneducated to the point of thinking it's one homogenous belief system?
>>
>>22907446
Vajrayana doesn't really maintain secrecy much anymore. I can go to the store and find dzogchen and mahamudra tantras, and there are multiple books on my shelves that discuss the intimate details of initiation rituals that would normally not be public. Times change. And I wouldn't say that hinduism and yoga have been corrupted. There still exist multiple unbroken lines of initiation in various hindu and yoga lineages.

Don’t listen to the buddhists,they’re just mad about Adi Shankarachayra destroying their monopoly on the religion in Asia.

Hinduism is the way
To understand Hinduism (the way I do,there’s many other ways) all you need to do is gain knowledge on the deeds of the 2 popular avatars of Vishnu/supreme personalities of Godhead depending on who you ask.

Lord Rama and Lord Krishna.
Their teachings are the only teachings you need to follow to become a practising Hindu

92:4.9.
The Urantia Papers. The papers, of which this is one, constitute the most recent presentation of truth to the mortals of Urantia. These papers differ from all previous revelations, for they are not the work of a single universe personality but a composite presentation by many beings. But no revelation short of the attainment of the Universal Father can ever be complete. All other celestial ministrations are no more than partial, transient, and practically adapted to local conditions in time and space. While such admissions as this may possibly detract from the immediate force and authority of all revelations, the time has arrived on Urantia when it is advisable to make such frank statements, even at the risk of weakening the future influence and authority of this, the most recent of the revelations of truth to the mortal races of Urantia.

181:1.7.
Jesus gives peace to his fellow doers of the will of God but not on the order of the joys and satisfactions of this material world. Unbelieving materialists and fatalists can hope to enjoy only two kinds of peace and soul comfort: Either they must be stoics, with steadfast resolution determined to face the inevitable and to endure the worst; or they must be optimists, ever indulging that hope which springs eternal in the human breast, vainly longing for a peace which never really comes.
181:1.8.
A certain amount of both stoicism and optimism are serviceable in living a life on earth, but neither has aught to do with that superb peace which the Son of God bestows upon his brethren in the flesh. The peace which Michael gives his children on earth is that very peace which filled his own soul when he himself lived the mortal life in the flesh and on this very world. The peace of Jesus is the joy and satisfaction of a God-knowing individual who has achieved the triumph of learning fully how to do the will of God while living the mortal life in the flesh. The peace of Jesus' mind was founded on an absolute human faith in the actuality of the divine Father's wise and sympathetic overcare. Jesus had trouble on earth, he has even been falsely called the "man of sorrows," but in and through all of these experiences he enjoyed the comfort of that confidence which ever empowered him to proceed with his life purpose in the full assurance that he was achieving the Father's will.

Imagine taking AI seriously
Imagine a world where AI is actually mentioned

The only time AI is actually mentioned is in obscure threads and forums, nobody IRL cares about this its never going to sit well with normies, even if it spreads slowly like how Computers and cell phones became a norm, i think in the end it will end up half assed and not working and people will only laugh at it

idk why so many people online are so afraid of AI

Let's establish some things:

>I'm referring to the christian version of god.
>He is supposedly all knowing
>If he is all knowing then he knows all the decisions you are going to make and the options for each decision.
>This can be implied from the scripture Psalm 139:4, "You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord."
>Not only that but we can also assume that god knows EXACTLY which option you will choose in any given circumstance.

To deny anything stated above is to deny god's supposed omnipotence. If god knows everything then he HAS to know which choice you will make in all of your decisions.

Having said that, consider this:

>If he is omnipotent, then he knows all of your decisions and their exact outcomes
>If he knows that, then your decisions have already been decided since he knew what you would ultimately do from the start.
>If that's the case, then everything you do is set in stone including whether you go to heaven or hell since he knew it was going to happen before you were even born.

You absolute anus. god knew they would learn from past mistakes. Everything you do, if there is a god, is already known. Stop being such a cock brain and think for a change. If he knows absolutely everything, he'd know if you learn/not learn, change/stay the same, heaven/hell. How hard is that to comprehend?

But since he doesn't exist, none of that matters.

>>22908503
I see, so the fact that it's true makes us victims and not responsible for our actions?

> people wouldn't learn from past bad choices and make better ones in the future
Unless it's still all according to god's plan, you absolute ignoramus.
Listen cherry-picker, why are you only using small parts of the scripture, are you too obtuse to see the entire picture?
Yes, if we were to judge god's actions we'd conclude that he was a retard, but so what? Weren't YOU the one who said that everything god does is good, so why can't his retardation be good?
It's a rabbit hole you dug yourself in, so don't project it on others

This thread is proof that most people are retarded and that God is just meant to represent some sort of a higher, infallible moral authority. 99% of the stories in the Bible aren't meant for literal interpretation, it's more about showing the worth of values through literary themes.

So I have picked up a passing interest in magic, occultism, hermeticism, and the esoteric over the past few months, but I find it difficult to break into because so many of these people who talk or write about these subjects can't agree on simple things, least of all what the definition of "Magic" even is.

So many of these people define magic (or "magick") as just changing how you view the world and improving your personal life with positive thoughts and energy. I'm sorry, but that sounds way more like something I'd find from a self-help book recommended by Oprah than anything overtly supernatural.

So let me be clear about what I typically picture in my head when I think about learning magic: I think about levitating books with my mind. I think about astral projection to remote view distant locations. I think about blessing my friends, cursing my enemies, charming my lovers. I think about throwing fucking FIREBALLS. I'm not expecting real life occultism to turn me into Doctor Strange, I just kinda expect more "super" out of my "supernatural," you know what I mean? My local witches are all lovely people, but my faith in their magical ability is very low.

So I guess what I'm asking here is what disciplines, orders, and/or practices should I look into for this stuff, and what do you guys consider to be bogus or at least not worth my time? Thank you in advance.

I think CIA have unclassified documents on psychics in china who managed to teleport objects in monitored conditions. There's plenty material on astral projection and remote viewing as well, it just doesn't work as you wish it to be. We live in the shittest low dimension, real actual magic is nurfed here, unless you manage to pierce through the 3d matrix somehow.

Charming works, I did a candle ritual from EA koetting's channel and it worked. But I did some retarded thing in the process that interlinked us together in a way, that we had spontaneus telepathy from time to time.

Remote viewing works as well, but in a retarded way. Sometimes i managed to see the exact object how it looked on the control picture, and other times it would be completely unrelated bullshit.

The best I could milk from magic so far is a few brief communications with aliens and demons, looked up future crypto prices while astral projecting, so that's about it.

It's a dumb example, it's a card game.

the game is called magic the gathering in order for you to understand the rules of the game you understand them with some form of language

I speak english, so I learned in english, the game also uses symbols, and english to let me know what the abilities the cards do, the game is only real because both players make it real, not because the cards them self have any real meaning other than we are both trying to have some form of fun, and play competitively, the game really only works if we play by the rules, or if one of the players doesn't play by the rules one might get mad and stop playing, obviously you can cheat in the game, but you have to be clever, or convincing to the other player that is how the card can be played. It's a lazy metaphor but maybe you took something from it

body language experts should be studying this now.
there is over 2 hours of unedited HD footage with bob lazar, something we have never seen before and was not possible in the days of c2c/art bell.

i actually caught a few red flags at the start, that could either be attributed to lying, or fear/discomfort of opening up combined with super high functioning autism/aspergers like bob has.

the last 20-30 minutes is what gave me the chills..
bob seemed to actually be telling the truth 100%, i could just feel it.. he was too confident with his words to be lying.

So the Admiral Wilson transcript from 2002 about not having access to an SAP that supposedly has to do with the same thing Lazar was working on has some interesting information. For me it corroborates what Ben Rich of the skunk works started saying in the early 90s.

Timeline:

- lazar comes out about the project to the public.
- project is cleaned up due to security breach and given over piecemeal to private defense. Takes about 2 years for the transfer of info and control to take place.
- 1992-1993 Ben Rich starts going on and on about these special projects that the Skunk Works has been contracted to handle and it has to do with space travel and extra terrestrials.
- 2002, Admiral Wilson has supposed authority over some of these projects. Tries to get read-in, gets denied by private defense. Explained that the military has little to do with it anymore and they only bring the project out ever decade or so to see if progress can be made with the current tech.

My gut says private defense made some really big strides on the physics side of things in understanding the craft and the framework of the physics developed to make the progress is the big secret. The whole “we bring it out every once in a while” is a cover for those like Wilson or others who would otherwise have a need or right to know.

It’s a risk for sure. If the Identimat 2000 in the movie wasn’t real and was just some generic hand scanner device the production crew thought up to make the scene seem more legit, then Bob would look like a 100% liar because he’s claiming a movie prop was the real thing. But it turns out the prop in the movie looks and functions exactly like and maybe is a legit real Identimat 2000 used to access protection for some of the US’s most secure projects. I think this lends itself more to him telling the truth than lying. It’s an odd detail to include if he was just going off of some movie with the risk of it being a prop.
